How To Become Vulnerable With Yourself

Life is about relationships and the most important relationship you will ever have is the one you have with yourself.


What is Self Vulnerability

Self vulnerability can seem intimidating and overwhelming, but it is a key element to personal growth. Self vulnerability is the openness to accept our weaknesses and shortcomings, and to take ownership of them. It is a process of facing our fears and allowing ourselves to be emotionally exposed in order to reach a deeper level of self-awareness. It means recognizing that we are human, with flaws and imperfections, yet still worthy of love and acceptance.


In order to become vulnerable with ourselves, we must practice self-compassion, understanding our feelings without judgement or criticism. We must learn how to trust ourselves by accepting that emotions are part of being alive; they can be uncomfortable but they don’t have control over us. Additionally, it is important for us to recognize our strengths: what makes us unique individuals with valuable experiences?


Step 1: Recognize Fear

In order to become vulnerable with yourself, the first step is to recognize fear. Fear can be a major inhibitor in our ability to take risks and try new things. It often holds us back from being honest with ourselves and living an authentic life. Fear can manifest in different ways such as feeling anxious or insecure, avoiding certain situations or people, always playing it safe, or refusing to take chances. All of these are self-protective behaviors that are rooted in fear but don’t necessarily serve us well in the long run. By acknowledging and recognizing fear we can begin to tackle our own vulnerabilities head on without letting them hold us back from achieving our goals. With this knowledge we can start down the road towards becoming more open with ourselves and ultimately growing into a more confident person.


Step 2: Let Yourself Feel Emotions

Feeling emotions is a critical part of becoming vulnerable with yourself. It’s easy to push away our feelings and pretend they don’t exist, but that only keeps us stuck in our uncomfortable state. Acknowledging and accepting your emotions is the first step to true vulnerability.


The next step is to let yourself feel them fully. Allowing yourself to experience the full range of emotions will allow you to become more comfortable with vulnerability and accept it as a necessary part of life. Embrace any emotion you may be feeling—anger, joy, sadness—and give those feelings time so that they can move through your body instead of getting stuck in it. When an emotion comes up, take a few deep breaths and recognize what you are feeling without judgment or expectation; it will help you stay present in the moment instead of running away from it.


Step 3: Accept Uncomfortable Thoughts

If you want to become more vulnerable with yourself, the third step is to accept uncomfortable thoughts. This can be a difficult process, but it’s essential if you want to become more open and honest with your emotions. To start this process, it’s important to recognize that going through discomfort is part of the journey and one of the most powerful ways to learn and grow. It also means acknowledging that some thoughts can be difficult or even unpleasant, but they don’t have to define who you are or how you feel about yourself.


To help work through these feelings, try doing some self-reflection exercises such as journaling or meditation. These activities can help bring awareness and clarity around your thoughts so you can better understand them.


Step 4: Talk to Yourself Positively

We all need a little pep talk from time to time, and sometimes the best person to give it is yourself. Step four of learning how to become vulnerable with yourself is talking to yourself positively. This can be one of the most challenging steps in developing a healthy relationship with your emotions and thoughts, but it’s also one of the most rewarding.


If you find that you often talk down to yourself or say negative things about your decisions and choices, try replacing those negative statements with positive ones. Remind yourself that no one is perfect and acknowledge that mistakes are natural parts of life. Don’t forget to celebrate your successes, both big and small! Acknowledge that you have made progress even if it doesn’t feel like much at the moment; this will help keep up motivation for further growth.


One of the best ways that I have found to do this is through Mel Robbins “High 5 Habit” and her High 5 Your Heart.


Step 5: Find Supportive People

When it comes to becoming vulnerable with yourself, finding supportive people is a key step in your journey. These individuals can provide an outside perspective that can help you process and accept whatever emotions may come up during the process. It is important to find people who will listen without judgement and be available when needed.


The best sources for support are often our family members or close friends who know us well and have seen us through difficult times before. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone you know, there are also many online resources and support groups where you can discuss your process with others who relate to what you’re going through. Having a listening ear from someone who understands can be extremely helpful in helping you unlock the courage needed to be open with yourself about difficult topics or feelings. Or you could try therapy, I’m a big advocator of therapy.


Conclusion: Benefits of Self Vulnerability

Being vulnerable with yourself is one of the most important steps in personal growth. It’s a process that helps us to develop better self-awareness and understanding of our emotions, needs, and relationships. In this article, we explored the many benefits of becoming vulnerable with oneself.


By embracing vulnerability and learning how to cope with uncomfortable emotions, we are able to create meaningful connections with others and foster healthier relationships. Additionally, when we become more open about our thoughts and feelings towards ourselves, it allows us to recognize our strengths and weaknesses as well as find better ways to manage our stress or anxiety. Finally, by being honest about who we really are – both our highs and lows – it can help us become more accepting of ourselves which leads to improved overall wellbeing.
